Ring Neck Snake

              Ring Neck Snake  Diadophis punctatus punctatus

Seems these guys are on the move recently possibly due to the recent rains.  Whilst gathering my equipment for a photo shoot of two of these critters I almost stepped on another small one not quite 4" long.  Scooped em up and gave him or her their 15 minutes of fame before letting them go.  My daughter wanted to keep a couple as pets but found out how hard collecting food for them was going to be.
